It’s asparagus season here in my little town. I just picked my first round from my own asparagus patch, and roasted them up with olive oil, salt and pepper. There’s nothing like it in the world. Yummmmmm.
This time of year is a big deal in my town. A Dutchman named Diederik Leertouwer brought asparagus to our town from his homeland back in the 1780s , and we celebrate that momentous event every year in May. If you didn’t know this yet, I just ADORE my town. So anyway…. this weekend is the annual Asparagus Festival… asparagus, pony rides, flowers, a may dance, and a frog jumping contest are all part of the fun and I’m so looking forward to it!
Here are a few pics from last year to get you in the mood….
